Penstemon utahensis

Family plantaginaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-10)
Flowers red
Size 24"

Native to dry areas of southern California, Utah, and Arizona. The plants we grew from exchange seed labeled as P. utahensis unfortunately turned out to be P. hirsutus – a nice plant, but one that was already present in our garden.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
